Cheryl Cole to take legal action against MC Harvey relationship claims

Cheryl Cole and MC Harvey got caught up in one of the best celeb Twitter rows we've ever seen earlier this week. However, it seems that Cheryl isn't letting this one lie with reports that she's seeking legal action against Harvey.

Harvey gave an interview to Now magazine in which he claimed to have had a relationship with Cheryl after her split from ex-husband Ashley in 2010.

"It was like two people who'd gone through so much and both respected each other because of it," Harvey told the magazine. "I wouldn't have minded Cheryl being my wife!"

However, Cheryl hit back at the rapper on Twitter saying: "Was this 'relationship' happening in your head?! Are you smoking something?"

Cheryl Cole has reportedly taken legal action against claims of a relationship with MC HarveyHarvey then threatened to expose personal messages between the pair that he claims to have: ""Do you actually want me to tweet some of the messages you emailed me @cherylcole pipe down and stop playing the saint in front of your fans."

But reports have emerged today via The Mirror that Chez is so angry about the whole thing, that she's instructed lawyers to challenge Now magazine over the claims.

We're VERY interested to see how this unfolds.
